The US Coastguard has made contact with four crew members of a cargo ship that capsized off the coast of the state of Georgia on Sunday.
All are now confirmed to be alive. Rescue teams will drill a hole in the hull to send through supplies while they plan their extraction.
Car carrier the Golden Ray overturned early on Sunday morning after leaving the port of Brunswick.
Authorities only managed to save 20 of the crew before fire forced them back.
Those remaining on board are all South Korean nationals, the country’s foreign ministry said.
Rescuers have now made contact with those crew members still aboard the Golden Ray and are planning an extraction, the US Coastguard has tweeted.
